Yippee! It’s Friday, and I can finally catch up on some much needed rest.
But first, let me tell you what I read this week and what you should read too.
You have no idea how excited I am that one of my blog posts *clears throat* The 5 Most Financially Dangerous Haters (and How to Stand Up to Them) was mentioned in this article. I’ve gotten a ton of traffic to my site from it.
Besides me, there are some really great bloggers linked to in the article. I kicked the cable Kool-Aid habit years ago, so I found Squawkfox’s Breaking Up With Your Cable Company is Hard to Do particularly useful for those who are having difficulties withdrawing.
Stop Making Excuses. Creating a Second Stream of Income is Not Difficult by Evan at My Journey to Millions
Okay, I admit that picking on whiners, complainers, and do nothing knuckleheads makes me feel better about myself.
There. I’m glad I said it.
I’m also glad that Evan aired his frustration in dealing with people who constantly make excuses. He’s not alone. Even when you provide people with solid gold advice, they still come up with “reasons” your ideas won’t work for them. It’s exhausting. You’re better off focusing your efforts on people who fully appreciate your genius.

“For the love of God, go to college.” by Liz Weston at Ask Liz Weston
Liz Weston sets us straight on the actual facts about the increasing disparity between those who have a 4-year degree and those who don’t. We all hear about the stories of the unemployed lawyer with $200K in private student loan debt. But did you know that the median, cumulative student loan debt upon completion of a bachelor’s degree in 2007-2008 was only about $20,000? That’s a pretty manageable debt load.
Generational Poverty by Revanche at A Gai Shan Life
Revanche expresses beautifully how she stays motivated. The kid really seems to have had it rough. So if she can persist, most of us should be ashamed for quitting every time we face a minor bump in the road.
So, that’s it.
Thanks for playing.
Enjoy your weekend.
